WINTERWATCH fans were shocked after Michaela Strachan made a “naughty allusion” on tonight’s show.
The fourth episode of the new series aired tonight – and many viewers were overwhelmed by the host’s word choice in the opening.
The 55-year-old and co-host Chris Packham, 60, were on the moon that they FINALLY caught the beaver on camera during the night and couldn’t wait to share it.
While they were filming, Michaela said: “All good things come to those who wait.
“Our patience has paid off and now we celebrate the sight of a beaver! Not a glimpse but the whole scene!
“Clean…scratch…prepare for its signal to let us beaver action!
“That’s what we’ve been waiting for! So stick with us in the meantime as we’ll bring you hats and more.”
But fans of the BBC Two show were left speechless at Michaela’s “naughty allusion”.
One person wrote on Twitter: “Laughing at the mention of beaver, like me at twelve. #Winterwatch. Obviously I need to get out more.”
Another said: “A Hot Beaver Action Promise on #Winterwatch.”
A third part is added: “#WinterwatchMichaela promises some Beaver action boys”, and a shock emoji.
“Michaela Strachan delivers ‘hot beaver action’ on #Winterwatch tonight. I think I need a cold shower. You’re naughty Michaela ferret,” said the fourth.
Another added: “Looking forward to some big beaver action tonight.”
This isn’t the first time it’s happened on a wildlife show either.
The duo shared a clip of a river scene that captures the moment a striped owl tries to “grab” a brown rat from the riverbank.
Fans were immediately amazed at Chris and Michaela’s choice of words, after they first mentioned the word “robber” to describe the owl’s quest and then called the rat “spunky.” .
Viewers were also captivated by last night’s episode as host Chris described a rat torn to pieces.
They were desperate to know if Ray the rat would survive the night, but the presenter hinted at some tragic news.
The naturalist introduced the show, explaining that the rodents could have been “torn apart” and reciting a poem about the tiny creature.
He said: “When the realm of the day snores, at the edge of the water something oozes rustling.
“Long-tailed, stinking of fame, it’s a shameless rat named Ray. Life is full of rats right now, which might explain how we’ve attracted this rodent.
“And ask, was he ripped to shreds or did he survive another day?”
